WTB - set of Ford 385-series wrist pins

Post by PackardV8 » Thu Apr 23, 2020 12:19 pm

Working on a Packard, converting the bushed pins to pressed. The Ford 385 series wrist pins looks to be the way to go. Anyone got a take-out set on the shelf I can use to give this a try?

Jack,
Do you still need these ? I just took in a 460 for some work and will be taking the old pistons off the rods. Dont know what type of shape the pins will be in but if you are interested let me know and they are yours.

Pin diameter for a 429-460 is 1.040. length varies from original to aftermarket ( shorter) and only matters if locks are used.
